I am a MS student at UF, but I would like to join a Ph.D. Program at another school in the USA. What should I do?

MS students who are working in research groups should have a conversation with their research advisor and with Dr. Ziegler as soon as they come to this realization. Together, the research advisor and Dr. Ziegler will come up with a career strategy to help the student achieve their goals. Students should also work to cultivate relationships with their course instructors to ensure that faculty members at UF can write strong recommendations for you in your next steps.
